Program Details

Graduate Business Certificates (GBC) require 16 credit hours. You may take fewer than 16 credits, although you will not earn a certificate. A GBC is designed to be flexible to you. You can finish in as little as six months or more than a year depending on your schedule. You must have completed a bachelor’s degree to participate in the GBC program. Classes are held two evenings a week, typically following a Monday-Wednesday or Tuesday-Thursday schedule. Limited daytime options are also available.

All GBC courses are fully transferable and may be applied toward pursuing a Daniels MBA or master’s degree.
